Senior Class Poem
Our high school days have come and
The years have fast passed by;
It seems but just a day or two
Since we were Freshmen shy.
For four short years we worked and
With happiness and tears;
But now we must prepare to face
The trials of coming years.
Now dear classmates of thirty-four,
The time has come to part;
With sadness we must say goodbye,
And tears to our must start.
When we think o'er the past four years
When we entered this school so dear;
It makes us want to live again,
The days of each school year.
The memory shall never fade
Of you old school so true;
And we will always hold most dear,
The days we spent with you.
Now let us all go up and on
With all our might and main,
For we must fight and ne'er turn back
If we the heights would gain.
So farewell, Teachers, Friends and
We say our last adieu ;
Our loyalty through future years
We pledge to you anew.
—Eddie Pierce, Class Poet.
Senior Class History
In the fall of 1930 when we started our first step on the ladder,
towering toward success, it was quite a jump for us. We, as Freshmen,
took our "knocks" and "bangs" from upper classmen because we were
afraid to object. Neverheless, we pulled through our first year and thought
we were "it."
Then came our second step. We dreamed of the day when we should
be Seniors: we even learned some of the High School slang; and we were
certainly acquiring our share of self-respect. After a winter of toil and
slavery we entered into spring with the newly-found joy that we were
to carry a daisy chain for the dignified persons that we had loved and ad-
mired for the past two years. A few of our number were left behind, but
there was no thought of defeat for us — we were "climbing up."
As we stepped into place as Juniors, we could think of nothing but
our Junior-Senior Banquet. The thoughts of gaining a level for one
night with those we had admired was too much for us. Every Junior
Class has been conceited, and we were no exception. When we finally came
down to earth we found that there had been a depression and that our
beloved banquet was unttainable. We saved and scraped until, at last, we
were able to give our dear Seniors and teachers a party. After this was
accomplished, our thoughts turned toward graduation and our place as
Marshals. Those who were chosen upheld the Junior morals by acting in
a manner becoming to their positions.
The top of our ladder was in full view before we realized it. Now
our attitude must be sophisticated and dignified. When we weren't work-
ing on our priceless annual we were picking out our rings, posing for
pictures, and living up to our "special privileges." The Juniors were
very successful with their financial difficulties and they gave us a very
unusual banquet. Preparation for graduation took all our extra time.
We selected invitations; paid for diplomas, and our caps and gowns;
and rehearsed our Senior play most diligently. When graduation finally
came and we said good-bye to our school and to our teachers that had been
so patient with us, we forgot our sophistication and longed pitifully to
be coming back next year.
Now that we have reached our goal, we are wishing the very greatest
success to the future Senior Classes of L. H. S.
— Bobby Roseman, Historian
Senior Class Prophecy
-Richard Huffman, Class Prophet.
Being class prophet has not been an easy task, but having beseeched the Unknown
Powers, I have been endowed with mysticism by which I have been privileged to
gaze through a crystal into the future. When I first gazed into its depths it seemed
densely covered with impenetrable clouds; however, after concentrating all my hyp-
notic powers I gazed fascinated into the crystal. At first dimly, and then clearly, I
saw the Rose Bowl at Pasadena. Bill Mauney's Duke Blue Devils were battling
Charles Tilson's Southern California Trojans for the championship. The scene changed
to an automobile race. C. D. Stroup and Billy Byars were in the lead. These boys
have certainly profited by the experience gained in Lincolnton.
Next I saw the skyscrapers of New York City. Many of my old classmates have
taken up life in the Metropolis. Bobby Roseman, and Jack Thompson own a large
theatre on Broadway. Mary Rudisill and Anne Page own an exclusive dress shoppe.
Clarence Duncan plays short stop for the New York Yankees, while Raymond Rudi-
sill and Claude Broome play in the outfield of the New York Giants. James Reinhardt
and Charles Little are among the city's most successful physicans. Eddie Pierce
is a distinguished poet and lives in a beautiful mansion on Park Avenue. Bill Bandy,
Ben Harrill, and Lester Mullen are the owners of a large department store in Lower
New York. Martha Mauney and Josie Padgett have made a great success of Broad-
way and are planning to go to Hollywood. New York certainly contains a lot of
The scene moves to Washington. It also contains a large number of my old
classmates. Rebecca Cloniger and Nancy Anderson own a large and fashionable beauty
parlor. Jim Duncan, Tom Shuford, and Ray Link are air mail pilots; while Hoke
Shuford flies the passenger plane from New York to Washington. Ophelia Lippard
is secretary to Senator Hillard T. Keever. Margaret Shinn and Mayzelle Moore
are models in a Washington fashion show. Francis Shuford and Naomi Rudisill are
the society editors of the Washington Star. Martha Beam and Georgette Brown own
a large and beautiful hotel, with Nell Huss and Beulah Robinson operating the hotel
beauty parlor. Edna Mace, Margaret Dellinger, Kate Kiser, and Signora Brotherton
belong to the staff of the Congressional Library. Washington has certainly given me
a lot of surprises.
The next scenes came from many parts of the United States. Lucille Seagle is
the very popular coach of basketball at Greensboro College for Women. L. C. Nixon
is owner and chief operator of the Packard Motor Company in Lincolnton. Mary
Helen Modlin, Laura Mae Mincy, and Ruth Ewing are teachers in Lincolnton High
School. Bert Barlow is a sports writer for the Charlotte Observer. Charlie Keever
and Earl Cook own a large farm implement company in Chicago. Ruth Elrod and
Lucy Belle Styers are missionaries in China. Alzora Williamson and Edna Mae
Proctor own a large florist shop in Charlotte. William Wilkinson is the retired ban-
tamweight champion of the world. Robert Jones and Roy McCreary are Radio an-
nouncers in Chicago. Martin Whisnant and Laurence Whitlock own a chain of Five
and Ten Cent Stores over the two Carolinas. Robert Buff is sheriff of Lincoln County,
and Wilbur Lowe and Howard Miller are his deputies. H. C. Cashion is a very suc-
cessful insurance salesman in Charlotte. Nellie Costner is head nurse in Johns Hop-
kins Hospital, while Mary Shrum and Hazel Warlick are her able assistants. Clyde
Mullen and Ray Barkley own large ranches in Wyoming. Almetta Cooke married a
duke and is living in England. Ethel Boggs, Elizabeth Cornwell, and Mattie Harrill
are teachers in Charlotte, Ruby Shuford and Willie Mae Avery own a large lunch
room in Baltimore. Blanchard Whiteside, Irene Ballard, and Sarah Cauble are Red
Cross workers in the Virgin Islands.
I saw all of my class; I wondered what the future held for me? I looked anxi-
ously into the crystal, but saw nothing. My magical powers deserted me, but I am
satisfied because I have read the invisible future of my friends.
